Renew. Refresh. Restart. It’s a new year! January is a time of reflection and planning. With that in mind, I’ve created some simple (I’m not a designer!) scripture prints for you (and for myself!).
Scripture is precious. We live by it.
What better way to continually remind yourself and your family of the things you already know (but that sometimes get lost in the clutter of life) than to decorate your home with scripture prints!
While you can certainly use these scripture prints however you want to (other than distributing the file and stuff like that, of course), here’s what I have in mind:
Frame them for long term wall art. I suspect they’d look a bit dull without a mat and nice frame (except the ones you color).
Put them up without a frame for as long as they last. I think cardstock looks nicer longer. You can also print them on colored paper or cardstock.
Just stick them on the wall (or a bulletin board, or whatever) for the rest of the month, or for was long as you’re in planning mode.
Put them in your planning notebook (where you’ll see them every day).
Most of all, live by them. These are real words of instruction from an Almighty God and we can depend on them!
Here are a few samples of what’s included. Three different fonts, one of which is “colorable” (if you can do detail work). There’s also a version including all of the verses. These are available in two different fonts. Not the outline one, for coloring. Ain’t nobody coloring anything that tiny! 😉
These are the verses I chose for the new year. I think they’re appropriate for a new year or a new phase of life because at such times we’re either wondering what in the world to do or we know exactly what we want to do and we’re trying to figure out how to make it work. These scriptures are valuable in either situation.
If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him. ~ James 1:5
Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths. ~ Proverbs 3:5-7
Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man. ~ Ecclesiastes 12:13
He hath shewed thee, O man, what is good; and what doth the Lord require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God? ~ Micah 6:8
If we don’t know what to do, they remind us to seek God’s guidance and also let us know what’s most important. Sometimes we get caught up in questions about whether we should do this or that (no matter how important those questions may be) and we forget that what really matters the most is not our to do lists and and goals: It’s God’s to be list. It’s the basic things God requires of every human being (not a gazillion other overwhelming things to get done. Whew!). And when we focus on first things first, we can certainly ask God to help us make sense of the rest.
If we already know what we intend to do, these verses can keep us out of trouble, so to speak. Keep us from making mistakes and plowing on in our own way and totally messing things up!
At least those are my thoughts. 🙂 Whatever these verses mean to you , personally, in the context of planning and starting into a new year, they are powerful reminders to help us on our way.
